btn_contactiSCSI storage area network (SAN) vendors and storage industry analysts alike have been praising iSCSI SANs as an ideal networked storage solution for small- to medium-sized business (SMBs) for years. Because it runs over IP, iSCSI does not require the specialized expertise of Fibre Channel; there is a variety of products on the market at SMB price points; the software initiators are built into all of the major operating systems; and the performance is more than adequate for many organizations.

The benefits outlined above have made iSCSI SANs attractive to many SMBs. However, iSCSI storage is taking hold in larger companies as well. According to the 2010 Storage magazine Purchasing Intentions survey which focuses on larger companies, 40% of respondents already use iSCSI SANs, and 41% plan to deploy iSCSI SAN systems this year.
